The Playboy of the Western World – The Musical always gets the audience dancing in the aisles, or in this case, in a tent!
This musical version of JM Synge’s The Playboy of the Western World is set in a radio studio in 1959 and includes a full cast, a live band and two foley artists creating hilarious live sound effects. Written by Diarmuid De Faoite and Justin McCarthy, with music by Justin McCarthy, the musical is a live version of their award winning radio play broadcast by RTE.
The show is being performed under a tent. ‘It’s like going back to the 1950’s’ according to Justin McCarthy one of the show’s producers ‘It’s probably the first time in years that live theatre has been performed under a stretch a tent!…it’s really authentic, like one of the original theatrical fit ups!’
